A romantic encounter with Star Clippers

February 7, 2017 Cruise No Comments Email Email

The graceful tall ships in the Star Clippers’ fleet provide an exceptionally romantic setting for lovers, for a honeymoon, marriage blessing, anniversary or other romantic voyage. Sailing in and out of the world’s most beautiful destinations in an atmosphere of casual elegance, a cruise on one of the three Star Clippers ships is akin to having a fully staffed private yacht.

Lay arm in arm on a deck-top sunbed, lie side by side in the bowsprit net with the waves skimming below, or spot dolphins together at dawn from the decks of a magnificent tall ship in full-sail. Make footprints on white sand beaches, snorkel the clear Caribbean waters and drop anchor in small bays and harbours.
Here are the top romantic moments on board a Star Clippers’ tall ship:
Star-gazing on a sun-warmed deck
Every spring and autumn, Star Clippers’ three ships reposition between their summer and winter cruising areas on long, leisurely voyages across the Atlantic. There’s no better place for star-gazing, away from light pollution, in the centre of the ocean; lying together hand in hand on sun loungers on the darkened deck and gazing up at the millions of stars scattered across an inky-black sky.

Make footprints on a Robinson Crusoe island
For the first time Star Clippers sail Indonesian waters in 2017 and the four-masted Star Clipper will voyage under thousands of feet of billowing sails sailing between lush, culturally unique and exotic port calls and drop anchor close to coconut-white coves that typify Indonesia’s thousands of islands, mirroring a Robinson Crusoe adventure. Make footprints on virgin white sand beaches when the ship calls into tiny jungle-and-sand islands, haloed by crystal clear turquoise sea.

Desert island kisses
The deserted islands of the white sand-fringed Tobago Cays in the Grenadines are strictly off limits to larger ships but easily accessible for a graceful clipper. Coconut palms arch over white, sandy beaches, lapped by the turquoise sea, the ideal setting for gathering shells together, or slip away to an even more deserted beach to be alone on this idyllic desert island setting.

Loving it in Venice
The world’s most beautiful port to sail into or away from is Venice. Stand arm in arm on the decks as the ship glides slowly along the Giudecca Canal, lined with majestic old palaces and churches. Wander hand in hand along the silent canals of the old city, find a shady square for an al fresco lunch a deux, take a gondola ride to see the city from the water while being serenaded by a gondolier.

Champagne and fireworks
Sip champagne on the upper decks of a magnificent tall ship while watching one of the world’s most spectacular natural phenomena, the frequent volcanic eruptions of Italy’s `Stromboli’, during a late evening sail-past. Stromboli sends a shower of fire and molten debris up into the air approximately every ten minutes and has been in continuous eruption for 2,000 years

Embrace La Dolce Vita
Wander through the narrow streets of Portofino, a former fishing village on Italy’s north west coast and now one of the most fashionable – and romantic —towns on the Italian Riviera.
